Peace at last?

I visited Lichterman Nature Center in east Memphis last November. If you decide to get a map and trek through the 65 acres of forest, there are moments you feel like you've been transported out of the city. The sound of honking cars recede, replaced only by the crunch of dead leaves underfoot. Otherwise, silence.

That is, until you hike far enough to the northern border of the property. A stark, ugly white building sitting amidst the trees reminds you that you're in Memphis, and it all comes back for sure when the bustling four-lane highway comes into view directly beyond that. Oh, well, it was nice while it lasted.

Dead...flower?  What is this?
Again, no clue what this is...
